Service 131 connects residents of St. Michael’s, Pek Kio, Bukit Merah and Bukit Purmei to the City areas of Bras Basah, Shenton Way and HarbourFront. It encounters demand from weekday office crowds as well as to leisure venues in Harbourfront and Bras Basah. The route also links St. Michael’s and Pek Kio Estates to Novena MRT Station and United Square Mall. Due to its inter-town and intra-city sectors, demand for Service 131 is moderate to high.

Service 131 serves bus stops in St. Michael’s Estate and Bukit Purmei twice in different directions; therefore, red and white plates are used to distinguish the direction of travel – red towards Bukit Merah and white towards St. Michael’s Terminal.

Supplementary Service 131M connects residential estate and schools in Lower Delta and Bukit Purmei to Jalan Bukit Merah and Bukit Merah Town Centre. It duplicates Service 131 along its entire route and provides connectivity for Bukit Purmei reisdents.
